It’s a whole new ball game!

With the New York Giants long knocked out of competition, Brooklyn does not have any skin in the 53rd annual Super Bowl game, broadcasting on Feb. 3. But for those who wish to root against the hated New England Patriots (or in favor of the Los Angeles Rams), here are three new spots in town where you can watch Super Bowl LIII. Kick-off is scheduled for 6:30 pm.

Stage plays

The new Dekalb Stage, which opened this week beneath City Point Downtown, will host its first Super Bowl viewing party on Sunday. The giant space fits 250 people, and will project the game onto a 15-foot screen, with more televisions scattered around the space. Tickets include one drink and an unlimited buffet with food from Dekalb Market vendors, including Likkle More Jerk Chicken, sandwich spot Lioni Heroes, and donut dealer Cuzin’s Duzin.

Dekalb Stage (445 Albee Square West, basement, between Fulton and Willoughby streets Downtown, 5–10 pm. $40 ($35 in advance).

Full on Fulton

Another new spot is just a few blocks away. Fulton Hall, a beer bar that opened at one end of the Gotham Market at Ashland last summer, has televisions on every wall, so each of its 150 seats will have a view of the sporting contest. All day long, the space will offer $1 buffalo wings and $15 pitchers of beer (the latter is limited to Coors and Miller High Life, so you might want to start with some of the bar’s 20 craft beers first). Groups of six or more can reserve a booth or table by emailing

Fulton Hall [250 Ashland Pl. at Fulton Street in Fort Greene, (718) 301–8480,]. Open 11 am–midnight. Free.

It’ll be Liiit!

The most unlikely spot hosting a Super screening this weekend is the dance club Schimanski, which is rarely open during the day. The Williamsburg hotspot will devote its 60-foot wide, six-foot high projection wall, which normally shows trippy visuals, to showing the football showdown. Disk jockeys will spin before and after the game, as well as during the commercials, and the kitchen will turn out wings, fries, and other finger foods all night. Table space is limited, so email for guaranteed seats.

Schimanski (54 N 11th St. between Kent and Wythe avenues in Williamsburg, 4 pm–midnight. Free ($10 with one drink; $30 with buffet plate).

Reach arts editor Bill Roundy at or by calling (718) 260–4507.
